Contribution to open office development

Juan Minor
Howdy,

My name is Juan Minor. I am a computer engineer with experience in
C/C++. I would like to volunteer my time to help out with this project
should any help be needed.

I can help with any of them. Wherever help is needed. Some assistance in understanding the code base would be appreciated.

Hi Juan,
I am not a developer but I have often seen the suggestion that new
developers try to build OpenOffice from the source so they can begin to
contribute. The build process could be politely described by "nontrivial"
from what I have seen on this list. There is a guide here
<https://wiki.openoffice.org/wiki/Documentation/Building_Guide_AOO>. Note
the platform specific instructions near the bottom. What is your preferred
platform?
I hope I am not misrepresenting anything in the above.
Thanks for volunteering!
Francis

Francis;

I am not a developer either, but you hit the nail right on the head as
far as advice given by many of the developers. I am cc'ing Juan on this
as he is not subscribed to dev@ and would not have seen your excellent
advice.

The only thing I would add is for you to subscribe to this mailing list
by sending an e-mail to [hidden email] You will
receive a reply (also check your spam folder) just click reply to it and
you should get a reply that you are that you are subscribed (again it
could end up in your spam folder). This is the best place to get help or
questions answered by the developers, and also were decisions affecting
the project get made.

Regards
Keith

A top-priority will be to work on OOXML Interoperability
Enhance existing import filter (lot of issues)
And create export filter

We have played around with the Idea instead of updating the code we have
to implement Apache POI.

If there is interest I can look up some resources to get started.

All the best

POI is Java based -
https://poi.apache.org
https://poi.apache.org/components/index.html
https://poi.apache.org/devel/index.html

The Apache POI PMC also manages Apache XMLBeans which is a core dependency for OOXML since the project first undertook support for OOXML about 2007/2008.

I recently saw JCC which is used by Apache Lucene’s pyLucene to wrap Java with C++
https://lucene.apache.org/pylucene/jcc/index.html

FYI - I’ve been a POI PMC member since 2008. If there are features lacking that we need it is possible to extend.

All The Best,
Dave

Thanks the info Dave.

When we discussed, I saw Damjan did some work. But I did not look at it.
Plus I would look up out some Wiki guides on implementing filters.


All the best

I would like to have a nasty issue fixed on Windows:

https://bz.apache.org/ooo/show_bug.cgi?id=128310

I would be happy to help you walk through that since i cannot code
myself... ;-)
